Plot:
Three guys has a girl captured to perform experiments in the form of torture on her, to see how much her body and mind can take.

Our thoughts:
This movie is all about torture, there is no plot, and there is nothing else happening what so ever. And hey, I'm not complaining! The experiments that are performed are very cruel and the perpetrators show no mercy. Some of the experiments they do on her is hitting her face with their hands, hitting her with a bag of coins, pinching her skin with a claw till it turns blue, pulling off nails and playing extremely loud noises in headphones for 20 hours,
to name a few. But none of those can compare to the final scene; the infamous needle scene.

It's obvious that this short film is made to shock, and that they worked hard to make it look realistic. While it does shock at times, there are a few scenes that feel very unrealistic. There are two things that comes to mind when I'm talking about it's realism. The first one is that the girl truely sucks at making screams sound real, most of the times they just sound stupid. The second one is the fact that the movie is filmed in different angles. Luckily, the shock value in this movie often works even with those flaws dragging it down. There are scenes that look close to a 100% real too, especially the needle scene I mentioned above. Gotta give the series some credits since it got Charlie Sheen to believe it ("Flower Of Flesh And Blood") was real, so he tried to sue. Of course he failed.

I don't have alot more to say about this movie, because there isn't much more to it, but every review needs a few final words, so here they are.
Alot of people didn't like this movie because they expected much more, so my advice is that if you are going to check this out, don't buy into all the rumors. This movie won't make you sick, but there is violent enough things in it to make you feel dirty. Don't watch this movie if you want gore, watch the second Guinea Pig movie instead, titled "Guinea Pig: Flowers Of Flesh And Blood".


Positive things:
- Does what it was made to do.
- Nice effects.
- Very good ideas on how to torture a person.
- The needle scene. I just love it.
Negative things:
- The girl.
- Several camera angles.
- The guts experiment. It was just ridiculous.
- Gets boring at times.

Rating:
Gore: 2/5
Nudity: 0/5
Story: 0.5/5
Effects: 3.5/5
Comedy: 0/5
